Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Walter Jetz mainly investigates Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Range and Climate change. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Extinction. The various areas that Walter Jetz examines in his Extinction study include Global biodiversity and Biological dispersal.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Taxon and Null model in addition to Species richness. His work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Land cover, Ecosystem, Habitat and Biogeography. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Physical geography and Temperate climate.

His most cited work include:

  • Methods to account for spatial autocorrelation in the analysis of species distributional data : a review (2181 citations)
  • The global diversity of birds in space and time (1802 citations)
  • Global patterns and predictors of marine biodiversity across taxa (775 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Walter Jetz focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Range and Environmental resource management. In Ecology, Walter Jetz works on issues like Extinction, which are connected to Habitat destruction. Walter Jetz combines subjects such as Spatial ecology and Habitat with his study of Biodiversity.

His studies in Species richness integrate themes in fields like Taxon, Biological dispersal, Threatened species and Scale. His Range research includes elements of Ecology and Endemism. His Environmental resource management course of study focuses on Ecosystem services and Convention on Biological Diversity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (100.82%)
  • Biodiversity (59.18%)
  • Species richness (37.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Biodiversity (59.18%)
  • Ecology (100.82%)
  • Global biodiversity (15.10%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Biodiversity, Ecology, Global biodiversity, Species richness and Vertebrate. His Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Environmental planning, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem, Genetic algorithm and Sustainability. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Climate change and Scientific consensus.

Ecology connects with themes related to Extinction in his study. Stewardship and Sampling is closely connected to Global change in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Global biodiversity. His research integrates issues of Biodiversity hotspot, Hummingbird, Biogeography and Scale in his study of Species richness.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Inferring the mammal tree: Species-level sets of phylogenies for questions in ecology, evolution, and conservation (109 citations)
  • COVID-19 lockdown allows researchers to quantify the effects of human activity on wildlife. (93 citations)
  • Global habitat loss and extinction risk of terrestrial vertebrates under future land-use-change scenarios (83 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Walter Jetz mainly focuses on Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Extinction and Species richness. His work in the fields of Biodiversity, such as Global biodiversity, overlaps with other areas such as Harm, Business and Decision support system. Many of his studies on Ecology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Variety.

In his research on the topic of Environmental resource management, Range, Abundance, Ecosystem and Species distribution is strongly related with Data collection. His research in Extinction intersects with topics in Critically endangered, Climate change, Data deficient and Competition. His Species richness research incorporates themes from Biodiversity hotspot, Allopatric speciation and Genetic algorithm.
